Paris in summer, when it sizzles, and still looking cute? Here's my suggestion for an outfit that works in the City of Light or the Windy City:
Dress - Like a light trench coat for the summer. $98 from Anthropologie.
Handbag - A $930 Yves Saint Laurent goatskin hobo bag that is so perfect and French. Le sigh.
Bracelet - A simple gold bangle inspired by a bronze age find displayed at the Musée d'Archéologie nationale : Château de Saint-Germain-en-Laye
Shoes - A pair of strappy sandals that look sky-high but actually come with a demure little heel. From Nine West for $78.
Sunglasses - A vintage pair from Forever 21.
Pluses - Red lipstick, a map of the Paris subway and a box of Laduree macaroons.
